My husband and I really enjoyed our first cruise. The Radiance staff is excellent. The cruise director, Simon, is charming. We LOVED our main dining room waiter, Abel. He was such a ham!

We didn't care for Cozumel (go to Pancho's Backyard for lunch), but Key West (conch train tour), Grand Cayman (swam with stingrays), and Jamaica (4x4 safari adventure) were a blast. Be sure to sign up for a shore excursion in Grand Cayman so that you don't have to get a tender ticket.

We didn't like how expensive drinks were, and we didn't think that the ship's singers were very talented. Nevertheless, we still drank and went to all of the shows!

The ship is beautiful and by the end of it my husband and I had both agreed that we wanted to spend more days "at sea" on our next cruise!

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was good, but nothing to write home about. Don't miss lobster night in the main dining room.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had internal stateroom #4057. It was a perfect location--just a few steps from the lobby bar, elevators, front desk, and main dining room, without any of the noise!

Pros: Service, Food

Cons: Shows, Drink prices
